Ben is thrilled to embark on his first theatrical production at his parents’ alma mater, Barter Theatre. He abandoned his strict “I don’t perform for other people’s parents.“ policy in exchange for a weekly paycheck, and a true businessman was born. As a 6th grader at E.B Stanley, Ben rocks out on trombone and electric guitar, and loves playing Legos and videos games. Ben would like to thank his parents, Jim and Seana Hollingsworth, for prioritizing the arts and literature, resulting in him wanting to be on stage at The State Theatre of Virginia with so many actors he considers to be his family. Fun fact: Benen is an old Irish name that means “kind".
